Wayland Hiott’s Tuesday letter, “Government health care is suspect,” really got my goat. The Veterans’ Administration, like most non-military government agencies, is kept chronically underfunded by Republicans. Of course it has difficulty doing its job.

For Republicans to blame the VA for the problems they themselves cause is disgusting. It’s like cutting someone’s foot off and then attacking him for not winning a marathon.
